|Forced Convection Heat Transfer over a Horizontal Plate Embedded in a Porous Medium Saturated with a Nanofluid in the Presence of Heat Sources|
In this paper, forced convection heat transfer of nanofluids over a horizontal flat plate embedded in a porous medium saturated with a nanofluid is numerically analyzed. In the boundary layer, heat can be generated or absorbed. It is assumed that the nanoparticles are uniformly dispersed in the base fluid. A similarity approach is used to reduce the governing partial differential equation to an ordinary differential equation...

|Nickel-coated Aluminum Particles: A Promising Fuel for Mars Missions - Shafirovich, Evgeny|
Combustion of metals in carbon dioxide is a promising source of energy for propulsion on Mars. This approach is based on the ability of some metals (e.g. Mg, Al) to burn in CO2 atmosphere and suggests use of the Martian carbon dioxide as an oxidizer in jet or rocket engines. Analysis shows that CO2/metal propulsion will reduce significantly the mass of propellant transported from Earth for long-range mobility on Mars and sample return missions...

|Fluid and electrolyte homeostasis during spaceflight: Elucidation of mechanisms in a primate - Churchill, Susann|
Although it is now well accepted that exposure to the hypogravic environment of space induces a shift of fluid from the lower extremities toward the upper body, the actual physiological responses to this central volume expansion have not been well characterized. Because it is likely that the fluid and electrolyte response to hypogravity plays a critical role in the development of Cardiovascular Deconditioning, elucidation of these mechanisms is of critical importance...

|2.57 Nano-to-Macro Transport Processes Fall 2004 - MIT OCW|
This course provides parallel treatments of photons, electrons, phonons, and molecules as energy carriers, aiming at fundamental understanding and descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes from nanoscale continuously to macroscale. Topics include the energy levels, the statistical behavior and internal energy, energy transport in the forms of waves and particles, scattering and heat generation processes, Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws, deviation from classica...
